That didn't happen by chance. Beverage companies and retailers use every trick in the book to get us to buy more. They recruit the biggest names in sports and entertainment to entice us and our kids. They increase standard portion sizes. They sell at rock-bottom prices, with super specials that can make soda even cheaper than bottled water. And they make an ever-growing selection of sugary drinks available everywhere we turn.
Why does this matter? Because overwhelming scientific evidence links these sugary drinks to both obesity and diabetes.
Isn't it time we Kick The Can?
